【英文惯用语:walking papers】一个职场斗士收到Walking papers可不是什么好事情,首先它可以指解雇通知单,出典可能是收到了walking papers你就只得开路了。我们来看个例子:

例句-1:You know that guy in personnel who growls at you if you want help? Well, he finally got his walking papers. He made the mistake of getting nasty with his own boss so he's out of here.

你知道人事部那个每当别人有求于他就对人大吼大叫的家伙吧,他终于被辞退了。他竟然发脾气发到自己上级头上了,这一来就被炒鱿鱼了。


这里的walking papers是解雇通知单,因为接到walking papers就意味着你得走路,离开工作岗位了。

Walking papers不仅可以指解雇通知,也可以指司法机构通知你配偶已与你离婚的公文。我们看个例子:

例句-2:My sister Rose finally got a divorce from this man. She really should have handed him his walking papers years ago - he was unfaithful, drank too much and even beat her if she said anything.

我姐姐Rose终于和这男人离婚了。其实她几年前就该跟他一刀两断的。这个人出轨、酗酒、甚至姐姐一有怨言他还动手打姐姐。

这里的walking papers是正式的离婚通知书。

老板刚给了我(我的)解雇通知。
